Leading Physicians Warn Against the Risks of Paxil

February 18, 2012

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has long recommended that women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant avoid ingesting Paxil (paroxetine) and similar prescription antidepressants, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Medical research shows that SSRIs like Paxil may be responsible for a wide variety of fetal birth defects, including persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), potentially fatal cardiac defects, and severe behavioral conditions.


Are you a Paxil patient whose child has suffered physical, emotional, or behavioral birth defects? Your Paxil prescription and your child’s suffering may be more closely related than you might have thought. Are you ready to find out about the risks of Paxil and the available remedies under the law for the injured children of Paxil patients?
